This podcast is an audio recording of Jamie Reynolds and Amy Paden’s “Learning Walk” presentation “Educreations in Your Classroom: Use Narrated Slideshows to Enhance Learning” on August 7, 2013, at the TechKnowledgey 2013 Conference in Missoula, Montana. Jamie is the Library Media Specialist at Twin Bridges School, and Amy is a 1st grade teacher at Twin Bridges. They both were participants in the Spring 2013 “Mapping Media to the Common Core” course taught by Wesley Fryer via videoconference through the University of Montana. On their handout, Jamie and Amy wrote: Sharing these [student] presentations can be very powerful because parents and others have the opportunity to see and hear the work, ideas, and creativity of the students. Parents, grandparents and others will truly appreciate being able to connect with their kiddos in this way. Find someone on your staff or in a professional learning network you can collaborate with. This professional relationship will enable you to offer deeper educational experiences for you and your students. Subscribe to blogs, use twitter and seek out opportunities to enrich your knowledge base. These global forums offer great inspiration and ideas for your classroom and school.
